. they're going to go with it, they're going to make it work. and for paul ryan to be fighting that battle all over again -- after it was sort of was at the core of the 2012 election, some might argue it's what helped the president win re-election. they're going to argue that again? why? and the president will, will fight to defend medicare. he will fight to defend medicaid. because they're crucial to obama care. now james said i don't know why he's cutting medicare. there are going to be some strategic cuts around the borders. but the president is not going to give up on medicare and he's not going to give up on medicaid. and that was really what the 2012 election in terms of domestic policy was really all about. >> james, is this terrible strategy for the republican party in the long-term? >> i cannot believe that it's four and a half months after the election and they haven't sort of public strategic debate among each other and they're all sort of out there attacking each other. i've been around politics for a long time and a lot of people on this panel, i've been through a lot o

, congressman paul ryan would be your man. his budget reduces the deficit by an additional $2.75 trillion compared to senator patty murray's plan. but the race to a budget is not the goal of a budget. foumtly a budget is a reflection of your core values, and which investments you believe are necessary. to those who say government should treat its budgets the way households do, it's important to point out that a family's budget works the same way. parents don't pull their kids out of school or deliberately starve themselves or stop going to the doctor for the singular doing mattic purpose of spending as little as possible. and taking out kretic is both part of american culture and key to growing the economy. for instance, 71% of americans take out mortgages to buy a house, 60% of students take out student loans to go to college and 46% of americans carry credit card balances each month to buy things. therefore, growing the economy and creating jobs. to be sure, too much debt is not a good thing. in an economy is not ruined by debt alone. this is paul ryan's third budget and two ye

the disrespect. >> and the hangover of the paul ryan budget. that would disproportionately -- >> and also obama care which is amazingly popular. incredibly popular among african-americans, latinos and asian americans and the republicans want to repeal it, still. >> and eugene is right. it goes back to the central problem in the autopsy. and that is, this is, they're approaching this as a marketing problem. and that somehow if we change the color of the cereal box, that inside the cereal will taste much better and sell better. this isn't about hiring more walmart greeters, right? this is about having them come into communities with a different message. that's what's going to be fundamentally hard. look, i -- took part in a really long, tough primary in 2007 and 2008 with hillary clinton. it went the distance. but it wasn't a divisive ideological prime. it was about who was going to be the salesman against never before african-american candidate and a never before female candidate at that level. and these guys are having a very, very different, as you can see from those clips

spending on infrastructu infrastructure. how does it tack up to the budget proposed yet by paul ryan? here is a side-by-side comparison. the savings are more than double those in murray's plan. how has the numbers wizard able to find so much more extra fat to trim from the federal budget? he is cutting to the bone. more than $700 billion would be caved out of medicaid and nearly a try won would be chopped from programs including food stamps and pell grants. the defense would see zero in cuts in an enter view that aired this morning -- >> we're not going to balance the budget in ten years, because if you look at what paul ryan does to balance the budget, it means that you have to voucherize medicare, you have to slash deeply into programs like medicaid. >> but even those cuts alone don't make paul ryan's numbers add up. it only achieves balance through a full repeat of obama care, which it's worth noting is already law of the land upheld by supreme court and being enacted in 27 states. this gimmickry represents a stunning the extra $700 billion in savings from repealing a law. the editorial
